Lets Keep it Simple shall we---If you use photoshop or whatever, if the ppi (pixels per inch) shows 72 or 96 from your camera just change it in the program to 300ppi. ......

Even simpler, just ignore the any settings for dpi/ppi.  When the user looks at these images on a screen or uses a print program, those devices will automatically readjust the settings and whatever you submitted will be of no significance.  Those who ask for a specific setting just do not know what they are doing!
